Emmanouil (Manolis) Antonakakis was born and raised in Chania, Crete. He is currently a third-year undergraduate student at the Faculty of Law of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
His academic interests include Public International and European law, human rights and Alternative Dispute Resolution and he has participated in a series of such related competitions, debates, seminars and conferences. Moreover, he is an active member of the European Law Students’ Association and speaks four languages.
His journey to the world of simulations began in 2016. He did not need to wait long to realize how many benefits somebody can gain by joining such conferences. Thus, since then, he has participated in numerous simulations not only of UΝ committees, but of EU Institutions, UNESCO’s and regional organizations’ bodies as well.
SimUnesCO 2018 will be his 11th participation in a simulation, but not his first attempt at chairing. However, he feels more excited than ever that this year he will serve as one of the two Co-Chairs of the Committee on Education. As he believes that an educational simulation is a great experience that every student has to live at least once, he invites everyone to join the large family of SimUnesCo, this summer in the beautiful island of Corfu.
